HISTORY & LEGACY
Emmaus House Inc. is a Harlem-based 501(c)(3) public charity founded in 1966 by Fr. David Kirk to empower those in need, breaking the cycle of poverty at its root. Our organization has been a stalwart of service for over 53 years in the Harlem community.
Father David lived his life according to The Gospels and believed that all people were created equal.
“To be a Christian is to place yourself at the place of suffering. Where there is suffering, there is God.”
